Reinfeldt Prepares to Reveal Cabinet

Speculation is growing about which ministers will keep their jobs, and which ministers have been told to move on, ahead of Tuesday's official opening of parliament, when Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt will unveil his new cabinet.

Media reports suggest Social Insurance Minister Cristina Husmark Pehrsson will be one of the ministers told that their services are no longer required. There is also speculation that Minister for Roads and Rail, Åsa Torstensson, and Minister for Local Government and Financial Markets, Mats Odell are also to leave the cabinet.

Prime Minister Reinfeldt is due to present the new government at lunchtime Tuesday.
